Strengthening fundamental liberties on the Internet

The impact of the so called digitalization process in every single field of daily life (domestic, economic, social, political, cultural, legal etc.) constitutes a by far well known, widespread (to certain extend, even ubiquitous) phenomenon, and has led to a tsunami of theoretical and practical problems in the legal sphere, most of them not yet adequately settled. The state regulatory framework is even running after the facts and, besides some exceptions, coming late or too late. Besides this, the dynamics of the reality and its consequences, forces public and private actors to react and provide for adequate (effective) legal solutions, consistent whit the premises of the constitutional and democratic rule of law. Digitalization, however, has an ambiguous and quite paradoxical dimension, for being simultaneously an instrument for the protection and promotion of human rights and dignity, but also because it represents a huge menace for human values.
